Fleet Management Case Study
Bilmin Company, Inc. experienced resale value of the company’s used vehicles at 110% over Black Book Values.
Location: Gaithersburg, MD
Industry: HVAC Service and Construction
Total vehicles: 53 vehicles
Senior management had to take time away from their core HVAC service and construction responsibilities to focus on maintaining, repairing and replacing their aging fleet. Bilmin Co. was also unsure about leasing their vehicles as this industry has heavy wear and tear on vehicles.
Enterprise Fleet Management was able to provide Bilmin Co. with a managed vehicle solution. This freed up senior management’s time to refocus on running their business. A cycling plan was introduced and immediate savings were realized by creating a fleet plan and direct ordering new vehicles to take advantage of manufacturer incentives.
“Another and maybe the best result for us is the realization of one of the marketing features that Enterprise presented to me when we first were considering fleet management options. Overall a fleet of newer well maintained vehicles would produce a cleaner image, be more fuel efficient, and lost time (opportunity) from vehicle breakdowns would be far less. As a result even employee morale would benefit. Mission accomplished!”Dave Kerrigan
Additional cost and time savings, along with greater efficiencies were found by implementing the Maintenance Management and Full Maintenance program. Increased resale values of used company vehicles were also experienced by leveraging the Enterprise remarketing team.
After implementing a managed vehicle program, Bilmin Co. was able to drastically reduce the amount of administrative time spent managing the fleet. The company also experienced a reduction in fleet operating expenses. Bilmin Co. is now able to acquire a newer, modern fleet which improved its company image and employee morale.
